Tired of seeing new Residents waddle their way through their first hours in-world? Ever been able to spot a newbie simply by their unmistakably waterfowl-esque sauntering? If so, we need you! Linden Lab is seeking bids for contract work to create an improved default male and female walk animation for new Residents. We are well aware of the wealth of talent in Second Life so we turn to you, dear Residents, to put your best avatar foot forward to help us give new Residents the start they deserve.
So if you live, eat, and sleep Poser, Maya, or 3D Max, we may have a job for you. If you would like to be considered, please drop a notecard with your name, preferred method of contact, and any links to your work on Bucket Linden. You must be experienced with animation in Second Life and able to submit files of your work with samples of realistic human walks or dances in Second Life. Linden Lab will work closely with any contractor to make sure all animations work with our system and won’t disrupt existing content. If you meet the submissions criteria, we’ll be in touch! Thanks for your continued support and together we can fight the unsightly gait afflicting so many of our underprivileged Residents every day.
